Singapore American School

We moved to Singapore from Tokyo and both of our kids have been attending SAS since that time. The school provides our kids with cultural diversity in a system with a holistic view on education and a great emphasis on values that will help them to not only succeed academically, but also in life. They try new things, explore their interests and present their thoughts. It’s an American school where more than half of the kids are American, but you’ll find a surprising richness in backgrounds. There is a good balance between academic performance and having fun. Our kids love that the school provides more than 90 after-school activities! Casper and Caroline attended the American School in Japan, and one of the recommendations from that school was SAS. Many friends in Tokyo also recommended the school. We were convinced of it after speaking with some teachers; they showed such enthusiasm and love for the kids! We highly recommend SAS for several reasons. Being a not-for-profit school, it puts all its resources into education and has shown great student results – there’s even a high school experiment in the International Space Station at the moment! To a large extent, this can be attributed to the amazing teachers. They’re experienced and highly- educated professionals who truly care about our kids – it was already clear from our first parent-teacher conference after three months in school that they knew and understood our two. The school also has a Summer Semester Jump Start programme, especially designed for incoming students. Our children met new friends and familiarised themselves with campus during the two-week programme.
